56 ounces is ludicrously heavy. Edd Roush’s 48 ounce bat is frequently called the “heaviest in Major League history”, but if this report is accurate, Gandil’s bats were ~17% heavier than Roush’s bats.
This doesn’t sound good.
Dexter Fowler somehow escaped injury.
Hit the cutoff man!

Overland Park man buys baseball from Eric Hosmer’s World Series dash, loans it to Royals Hall of Fame
Then Lucas saw JB044155 and this description:
Session Name: 2015 WORLD SERIES GAME 5 KC@NYM
Session Date: November 1, 2015
Additional Information: BATTER — SALVADOR PEREZ, PITCHER — JEURYS FAMILIA, TOP OF 9, GROUND OUT
Lucas did a double-take. Wasn’t that the ball Mets first baseman Lucas Duda threw away as Royals first baseman Eric Hosmer dashed home to tie Game 5 of the 2015 World Series?
This is a pretty good first game. Of course, it was against the Padres.
I’ve played a lot of baseball games. This is one of my favorites.
A lot of great stuff in this article.
Posting this because of some of the factors related to his resignation are relevant to MLB front offices.
I haven’t had time to read the full thirteen pages of his long-winded resignation. With that in mind…as much as I buy into having an objective “process” in running a sports organization, you need people skills and ownership backing to get buy in or your franchise will be a muddled mess.

Yankees encourage StubHub users to get more exercise.
It’s not that I love bat flips, etc. so much. It’s just that the people objecting are so full of themselves that I feel compelled to be on the other side.
MLB Pipeline is publishing a series of articles on where each team’s Top 30 Prospects are projected to start the season.
Team which lose are given a bigger budget. Why not tie the difference to the luxury tax threshold and revenue sharing system? Right now the Reds have a pool of $13,923,700. The Cubs have a pool of $2,245,100. Why not strike a balance? Let the Cubs a little more room under the threshold?
The future has arrived. And in the future you won’t be so terrible at sports.
This is basically a glorified tech demo at this point, but I can imagine a time just a few years from now when you can field entire teams of real VR players around the world, all playing together in real-time.
